Explore woods and fields during Durham event


DURHAM — The Durham Conservation Commission will sponsor an exploration of Durham’s newest agricultural/forest land conservation easement at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 13.

Aided by grants from the Royal River Land Trust and Land for Maine’s Future, Steve Sinisi and his family have acquired The Davis Farm (now named Old Crow Ranch), Davis Road. The parcel will remain in agriculture. The commission wants to demonstrate to the public that land conservation does not mean the end of a parcel’s usefulness and previous functionality.

The landowner and a registered forester will be on hand to discuss different aspects, history and uses of this parcel.

Geocaches have been placed on the property for the event, so attendees are asked to bring a GPS. A GPS will be available for sharing for those that don’t own one. There will be trinkets at each of the five cache spots for children in attendance. The group will stop at each spot to explain the particular significance of the area.

Participants are welcome to snowshoe or walk. The rain or snow date will be Saturday, March 20. For more information, contact Steve Sinisi at 353-6498.
